Pitch Report

The pitch at the Lugogo Stadium in Kampala is balanced in nature. The pacers have an advantage in the initial overs. The Spinners will play a key role in the middle overs. Batters should look to spend some time on the wicket as they can score their runs later on. It is expected to be a batting-friendly track.
